I love quiet games

I love playing games with my classes. But I love it even more when we play quiet games! I play a game with my class that is kind of like Scattegories. They work in groups and have to come up with TV shows or movies that fall under certain categories. Sometimes group activities can get really loud, but when I point out to them that other groups can overhear their ideas, they realize that they have to whisper.

40 whispering 7th graders....it's a beautiful thing.

Ahh the new school year. What would that be like? All I know is that I miss you. Tell everyone at Timberline hello. I will try and think up some more quiet games for you.
